There are many ways to contribute to the success of your technical division. Divisions exist to engage the extraordinary talents of ASME members’ expertise for the advancement of engineering. ASME divisions represent a uniquely powerful resource for planning, developing and delivering technical content. Members that volunteer have the opportunity to grow and develop personally and professionally. Here are some specific ways you can participate:

  • Attend technical conferences sponsored by your division
  • Contribute to technical conferences by submitting an abstract/paper to be considered for the program.
  • Volunteer to help organize a conference by serving as a track/session chair or on the organizing committee.
  • Contribute to a journal sponsored by your division. Prospective authors can learn all about the process to be published in an ASME journal.
